  • Big where it matters, small where it counts.

    Front-accessible IP4X rated enclosure includes space for mounting low voltage protection and metering devices and allows safe access for breaker and switch isolation operations to be performed from the front of the gear.

    Main bus Shielded and grounded solid insulation main bus system eliminates the need for a second gas tank to house the bus, improving reliability.

    Single sealed tankThe breaker, isolating switch and optional ports to connect VTs, are all contained within a single, SF6-filled, laser welded tank for a high quality seal with no on-site filling required.

    Arc rated In the event of an arc flash incident, arc-gases do not need to discharge into the cable vault, reducing the risk of propagating damages, and increasing safety.

    Design overviewThe Power Xpert XGIS provides a winning combination of customers most-wanted features that give extraordinary value in safety, reliability and space savings with no sacrifice of functionality.

    Small footprint and compact design

    Safer is smarter for youroperation

    Virtually maintenance-free for maximum reliability

    Big where it matters, small where it counts.

  • Workforce safety is the number one concern for business. By design, construction and operation, the XGIS reduces risk for your operation.

    Robust construction and decreased potential for arc faults provides enhanced safety

    Completed internal arc testing in all medium voltage areas including cable, breaker, switch and main bus compartments

    Certified as arc classification AFLR (31.5kA for 1 sec) to increase safety

    Shielded and grounded, solid-insulated busbars provide phase-to-phase isolation, minimizing the risk of phase-to-phase faults

    Safer is smarter for your operation

    Visible line of site to three position disconnect switch with camera options

    Interlocked three position disconnect switch for isolating and earthing with electric operation

    Isolated fused or non-fused VTs available for both main bus and cable applications

    Safe HandlingModular busbars are solid-shielded to facilitate connection and removal reducing risk for accidental contact

  • Virtually maintenance-free for maximum reliability

    Downtime is costly especially when unforeseen. Gas-insulating technology dramatically reduces maintenance requirements.

    Virtually maintenance-free solution is an impressive long-term value with a low total cost of ownership

    UL witnessed and STL certified to IEC 62271-100 and -200

    Designed and tested in third-party labs to IEC and IEEE standards

    Expected lifespan is up to 40 years

    Medium voltage parts are enclosed within a sealed gas-insulated tank or encased in grounded solid insulation, protecting them from accidental contact and the environment

    Straightforward installation The laser welded gas tank is factory-filled with no on-site handling of SF6 gas required, making installation quick and less costly.

    Circuit breaker and three position disconnect switch are housed in a sealed tank design of IP65 rating to ensure highest protection against contamination.

  • Small footprint

    Small but accessibleBreaker and three position disconnect switch operations are performed from the front of the switchgear with a user-friendly interface, making it intuitive for personnel to operate.

    Many applications have limited space to work. The XGIS fits the often tighter spaces of urban and existing buildings.

    Systems compact design allows installation in areas with minimal floor space

    Small footprint means you dont waste revenue-generating space

    Compact design is suitable for retrofitting into existing locations including urban areas where space is at a premium
